First Timer's Guide: Crested Butte

October 10 2013, 1:00 PM

Drive: Yes, you'll want to hike in the fall foliage. But for some prime photo-ops, get in the car and meander along Kebler Pass. Though you can keep going and going on this road to other Colorado towns, following it for about 30 minutes will offer plenty of frame-worthy shots. There are pull-offs all along the pass so you can soak in the scenery. Tip: You're going to be hopping in and out of your car—and the area can be incredibly muddy if it has recently rained or snowed—so wear appropriate clothing.
